2002 Buick Century Custom 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)


Purchased this car new in 2002 for my wife, and as our primary vehicle for out of town trips. From the beginning the brakes squealed. A knock in the front end developed within the first year...EXACTLY like the previous 1999 Century we had. GM tried but never fixed it completely. Gotta be a design flaw for it to happen on both cars that we owned. Last week while my wife was driving to work a valve spring broke...major engine repair costs. This car has been babied and the oil religiously changed every 3000 miles. We are very disappointed as we thought we'd have this car many more miles. Will keep as second car and buy a good Honda for primary.

Best Features

Ride is exceptionally smooth and quiet which is the main reason we have owned two of them. Power and reliability was good til catastrophic engine failure.

Worst Features

Don't build any more of them like this. What happened to Buick "Quality"? Won't buy another GM product.
